Grading Plan

The new CMS K-12 Grading Plan allows for students to receive specific feedback for continuous growth, academically and socially-emotionally, ensuring all students are set up to be independent and successful learners. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools believe grades should provide students and families with actionable information, reflect a student’s achievement on grade-level standards, and support a student's motivation to learn. For more information about why we made these changes, please watch the Grading Plan screencast video.

Covid-19 Information

The well-being, health and safety of students and staff is our highest priority. As our students return to in-person learning, we recognize  the COVID-19 situation is constantly evolving. Visit the Covid-Saftey page for CMS protocols and practices for the 2021-22 academic year. 


PowerSchool Parent Portal

Parental involvement is critical to a child's education. That's why CMS has provided a user-friendly web application to help parents and families become more involved in education. Parents can check their child's homework assignments, attendance reports, grades and other items from any computer, any time using PowerSchool.

Parents will be able to set up their own accounts with access information provided by the school.
